1938 Lincoln Model K V12 LeBaron Roadster
Contrary to the modern day, there was a time when the U.S. automobile industry featured several car companies that specialized in genuine luxury. Sadly, many have passed into the annals of history. Great names like Duesenberg, Pierce Arrow, Stutz, and Packard are long gone, but the Lincoln name still conjures up visions of grandeur in the American automobile. By being true to its roots and producing some of the finest luxury cars on the market, the Lincoln name is still a hallmark in both style and engineering. That’s what makes this 1938 Model K a truly unique car in Lincoln’s history, for it is certainly an automobile worthy of the company’s legacy of fine luxury cars.
Although Lincoln has built some great cars, this Model K is one of the last of the true custom bodied Lincolns as it is one of only eight ever built. Its stunning 136-inch wheelbase is the perfect length for a two passenger convertible. Power for this Lincoln comes from a 414 cubic inch V-12 rated at 150 horsepower. This magnificent car was fully restored by Spagnolo of Colorite at a cost of over $250,000 and is an impeccable restoration in every way. Its interior was returned to like-new condition and the finely detailed engine compartment is as beautiful as it is functional. In keeping with the fashion of the day, the engine compartment on this Lincoln is designed as a work of art as much as a functional part of this car. This grand Lincoln is also a former first place winner at the famed Greenwich Concours de Elegance.
This Classic Lincoln is a car that commands attention in any setting. Only two of these Lincolns out the original eight are known to exist. It is a rare car that offers great performance from its V-12 engine in a style that is a great example of the American luxury car.
